The Aquarite flow sensor replaces your old one. If installing for the first time, make sure you also get the PVC Tee and two unions for the T-Cell. It can be used on the Aquarite, Aqualogic and Aqua Trol pool systems. It can replace existing equivalent parts.
How your Aquarite flow sensor works
The Aquarite flow sensor ensures that water is flowing through your pool cell correctly, generating chlorine.
A reading of No Flow on your control panel usually means your flow sensor switch needs to be replaced. Always check whether there is water flow before doing anything – you many have another problem, such as a blocked filter, pump or other obstruction.
Check all connections and make sure your water flow is adequate to activate the contact. Most sensors will flash No Flow for a few seconds after being switched on – this is nothing to worry about. That is normal, and the light should stop blinking once it has recognized the water flow.
Installing your Aquarite flow sensor correctly
Your flow sensor is easy to install; it screws into your existing fitting. To ensure the best operation out of your flow switch, verify that the arrow on the switch itself points in the direction of water flow.
Make sure your flow sensor sits in the same section of plumbing as your Turbo Cell. If you don’t, explosive gases could accumulate in your pool plumbing system.
